Organic Amla Powder

(7 reviews) Write a Review


Amla is a natural plant also known as Emblica Officinalis. The dried, powdered fruit has tannins, vitamin C, and is astringent. 

Our Organic Amla is especially amazing for hair because:

  • adds texture, volume, wave, curl
  • shine to your hair
  • promotes hair growth
  • thicker, stronger hair strands
  • tones down red of henna
  • natural astringent making it good for facial cleansing
  • tightens up coils/curls

Our organic amla powder is vacuumed sealed and packaged in foil packages by 100 grams. This ensures freshness.

Why is our Organic Amla Powder superior to other amla powders? Read our article: Henna Sooq's Organic Amla Powder

Quantity: 100 grams

Be Advised: Our Organic Amla powder is not for consumption. This is hair grade quality amla and for external use only. 

Total amount of powder you should use:

Above ear length: 50-75 grams

Shoulder length: 100-125 grams

Bra strap or mid-back length: 150-175 grams

Lower back length (above hips): 200 to 225 grams

Using our Organic Amla

For added volume, growth or to maintain curls add about 3-4 tbsp of amla powder (per 100 grams of henna or Ayurvedic herbs used) to your recipe. You can also use amla powder alone with added conditioner to help maintain your curl pattern without affecting the color of the henna. As a facial mask you can mix the amla powder with warm water and apply onto the face from 5-10 minutes.

Recipes for Hair Conditioning and Hair Coloring

• Mixed with other herbs (such as Soapnut Powder, Shikakai, Brahmi Powder, Bhringraj, Organic Cassia Obovata) as the conditioning hair treatment.

• Curlies should add 1 tsp of Organic Aloe Vera Powder or 1 tbsp Flax Seed Gel or Aloe Vera Gel/honey to 100g Organic Amla Powder for easier application.

• As a final acidic rinse mix 1 tbsp steeped in 2.5 cups of hot water until cooled. Then strained and poured over the hair and left on for up to 5 minutes.

• 1 tbsp made into a paste and added to conditioner, flax seed gel, greek yogurt, coconut milk/cream as a deep nourishing hair treatment. Do not add the powder directly to a wet paste as it will clump.

• On its own mixed with tea or water over lightly pre-oiled hair. The amount needed depends on the individual’s hair length and thickness.

• Mixed with henna to maintain curls and tone down the red deposit of henna. 

You can use amla as part of your henna and ayurvedic hair treatments or on its own.

People generally use it on its own when they want to tighten up their coils after a henna or cassia treatment without affecting color results.

When using it along with other herbs you should add at least 3-4 tbsp per 100 grams.

You can mix your henna and ayurvedic recipes with warm water, tea, coffee, herbal teas, and some lemon juice. Don't use too much lemon juice, if any, as it can be drying

    review for amla

    Posted by Aenea on 17th Jan 2018

    i did not find that this product did much for the loss of curl pattern in my hair thanks to my use of henna. i followed directions exactly and although my hair came out shiny, there was no other difference. i shall keep trying but was very disappointed to find that it did nothing to restore my curls. am somewhat surprised that every single review you post raves about it.

    results for using AMLA

    Posted by Fran on 17th Jan 2018

    I used this product in a desperate attempt to bring back some of the curls that seemed to have disappeared with my two year use of henna and cassia. i tried it on its own. i didn't mix it with henna and cassia because i didn't want my colour dulled. did dull my colour, and the curls i once had are still not there anymore. my hair is shiny though and soft but i see no results to refresh curls. will keep trying.

    My waves get slackened by the indigo in my mix if I don't also use this excellent amla. Thanks, as always!

    I did a mixture of 1/4 amla to 3/4 organic Rajasthani henna with the juice of one orange and water. It came out a beautiful burgundy colour and I got to keep my curls! My hair looks so thick!
